Support for OpenShift and standard Kubernetes platforms

Support for OpenShift and standard Kubernetes platforms

Hello,

 

We would like to be able to install Micro Focus suites on a standard Kubernetes platform or an OpenShift platform.

As additional commentary: while I appreciate the HPE / MF bootstrapping of customers into K8S via the CDF, there are enough customers who are consuming either internal K8S (or OpenShift) that don't really want to take on Yet Another Container Platform (YACP). Being able to deploy, given some parameters, onto an already present K8S would make adoption a lot easier.

 

Very highly recommended that MicroFocus give some thought to at least being K8S compliant, if not totally able to deploy on a native K8S platform.

Yes, having the ability to deploy our ITOM suites on other supported K8S distros is in our core ITOM paltform roadmap. We continue to have few requests indeed to run on OpenShift. We will probably look at Red Hat, SUSE and certified K8S distributions. This implies some architectural changes from our current implementation so that we can decouple from our embedded K8S stack. We continue to monitor both the maturity of the vendor offerings and of our customers in the overall adoption of containers and their orchestration to best determine when we will execute on this important topic.
